Lode Runner Legacy Steals Onto Nintendo Switch
March 29, 2018
Latest addition to Lode Runner series brings signature action puzzle gameplay to a new generation of fans
Bellevue, Wash. – March 29, 2018 Lode Runner Legacy, the newest installment of the beloved 1983 Lode Runner series, is back-and better than ever! The modernized classic is now available for download on the Nintendo Switch, and can be purchased for $11.99 USD/€11.99 EUR. A free demo is available so new players can see what all the excitement is about.

“The original Lode Runner was the first game to feature a level editor, to which our new Craft Mode pays homage,” says Scott Tsumura, co-founder of Tozai Games. “When Lode Runner came out on the Famicom system in 1984, it also was the first third-party game to sell over a million units. Lode Runner Legacy really is about our appreciation of how important Lode Runner is in the history of gaming–literally, its legacy.”

In Lode Runner Legacy, players control the Runner, solving puzzles to regain stolen gold from the Evil Empire’s labyrinth. Each puzzle is a unique challenge to the player’s puzzle-solving and strategic techniques. The game features a brand new Two-Player mode, in which players can team up offline using two Joy-Cons or a Nintendo Switch Pro Controller. Teammates must work together to defeat each level-and their cooperation is rewarded handsomely with prizes impossible for a single player to capture. The Two-Player mode also has online rankings, so play in perfect harmony and aim for the highest score in order to make it onto the board!
Additionally, players can flex their creative muscles in Lode Runner Legacy’s most unique new feature: Craft Mode. Players can create original levels, characters, and items, which can then be shared online with players around the world, making Lode Runner Legacy one of the only Nintendo Switch games with user-generated content sharing. Share your original level and characters or play other players’ levels in World Levels mode, and “Like” the best ones!

Lode Runner Legacy includes countless features and game modes for players to explore. Players can regain stolen gold from the Evil Empire in Adventure Mode, or play enemy-free puzzle levels in Puzzle Mode. Additionally, Lode Runner Legacy comes equipped with 150 of the original Lode Runner levels in Classic Mode, as well as several hidden levels for players to uncover. All in all, there are 300 levels for players to beat as well as any new levels posted online, providing players with limitless hours of entertainment.

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.com Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
